Is the extra media/sponsor circus during race week a welcome distraction or a hinderance to preparations?

I have a fun time doing media and meeting fans but I also like laying in bed with my feet up watching Netflix. As long as I get time for both I’m good.

Is there anything in particular that you need to go right during race week. Or last workout sessions you swear by?

I’ve done enough races where things have not gone well in the lead up and I still won. So I don’t count on things all going to plan, that’s life.  I have a swim set I always do two days out from race day to get the arms and lungs firing.

What do you wish someone would ask you at a Press Conference?

If you could only eat one kind of food the rest of your life, what would it be?

How many devices do you have set to wake you on race morning and what are they?

Just one device, but multiple alarm times set. Though I have yet to be asleep at a race when the alarm goes off.
